7.3 If an injunction is sought or obtained against Customer’s use of the Software or Redistributable Component(s) as a result of a third party infringement claim, Digital.ai may, at its sole option and expense, (i) procure for Customer the right to continue using the affected Software or Redistributable Component(s), (ii) replace or modify the affected Software with functionally equivalent software so that it does not infringe, or, if either (i) or (ii) is not commercially feasible, (iii) terminate the Subscription and refund the Subscription fee received from Customer for the affected Software or Redistributable Component(s) less a usage charge based on a 12-month amortization schedule.

7.4 Digital.ai shall have no liability for any third-party claim of infringement based upon: (i) use of other than the then current, unaltered version of the applicable Software or Redistributable Component(s), unless the infringing portion is in the then current, unaltered release; or (ii) use, operation or combination of the applicable Software or Redistributable Component(s) with non-Digital.ai programs, data, equipment or documentation if such infringement would have been avoided but for such use, operation or combination.

8. Confidentiality

8.1 Each party that receives Confidential Information of the other party agrees that, unless the disclosing party gives its prior written authorization, the receiving party shall not: (i) use such Confidential Information other than for the purposes of this MSA; or (ii) disclose any such Confidential Information to any third party except those directors, managers, officers, employees, subcontractors, consultants, representatives and agents of the receiving party (collectively, the “Representatives”)  who are required to have such Confidential Information in order to carry out the purposes of this MSA and who have signed a non-disclosure agreement or are otherwise bound by confidentiality obligations at least as restrictive as the provisions of this MSA. The receiving party shall prevent the unauthorized use, disclosure, dissemination or publication of Confidential Information by itself and by its Representatives using at least the same degree of care that the receiving party uses to protect its own confidential information of a similar nature, but in no event less than a commercially reasonable degree of care.

8.2 The obligations of the parties under this Section 8 shall not apply to the extent of any disclosure required pursuant to a duly authorized subpoena, court order, or government authority of competent jurisdiction, provided that the receiving party has provided, to the extent permitted by applicable law, prompt notice to, and full cooperation with, the disclosing party prior to such disclosure so that such party may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy to protect against or limit disclosure.

8.3 Upon request by the disclosing party, the receiving party will certify to the disclosing party in writing that all copies, abstracts, summaries, and documents including Confidential Information have been destroyed.

8.4 Any breach of the confidentiality obligations set forth in this Section would constitute a material breach of this MSA, which the parties acknowledge may cause irreparable harm to the disclosing party, leaving it without an adequate remedy at law. Such a breach shall therefore entitle the disclosing party to seek injunctive relief in addition to all other remedies, without the necessity of posting of a bond or other security in connection therewith.

8.5 This Section 8 will remain in effect during the term of this MSA and for a period of two (2) years following the termination of this MSA or the applicable Order and, in the case of Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret under applicable law, for so long as such Confidential Information remains a trade secret.

9.2 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, in no other event shall a party be liable for lost profits, lost revenues, loss of data, loss of use, loss of business, or any indirect, incidental, special, punitive, exemplary or consequential damages, whether or not foreseeable, related to or arising from or under this MSA.

9.3 Under no circumstances will Digital.ai be liable in any way for Customer Applications, including for any errors or omissions in any content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any content uploaded or emailed in connection with or via the Software. Customer acknowledges that Digital.ai and its designees will have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to refuse or remove any Customer Application that is available in connection with or via the Software, including for violations of this MSA or any policies or terms of use of Digital.ai.

10.2 Customer will continue to receive the Subscription for any Extension Term of an Order in exchange for payment of Digital.ai’s then-current fees. Unless otherwise expressly provided in an Order, any extension fees shall be due and payable to Digital.ai no later than thirty (30) days prior to the start of the applicable Extension Term.

10.3 Either party may terminate any or all existing Order(s) immediately by providing written notice to the other party of such termination if the other party: (i) breaches any material provision of this MSA; (ii) is adjudicated as bankrupt or makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or if a receiver, liquidator, administrator or a trustee is appointed for such party’s affairs; or (iii) if a party is dissolved. None of the foregoing termination for cause rights shall be valid if the breaching party is able to cure such breach within thirty (30) days after the non-breaching party delivers written notice of such breach to the breaching party. Either party may terminate an Order at the end of the Initial Term or an Extension Term thereof by giving the other party at least 90 days’ prior written notice before the beginning of the next Extension Term.

10.4 If this MSA or any Order is terminated, Customer must within 30 days after such termination, at Digital.ai’s direction, destroy or return all affected Software and Documentation and certify in writing that it has complied with this Section 10.4.  Upon expiration or termination of the MSA, if Customer was granted a Redistributable Components License, then in addition, Customer shall: (a) cease the reproduction and distribution of the Redistributable Components (except as provided below); and (b) promptly certify to Digital.ai that Customer has done so. However, for those Customer Applications that have been distributed by Customer prior to such expiration or termination and for which Customer retains the Redistributable Components License post-termination, Customer may retain one (1) copy of the Redistributable Components to support existing End Users of the Customer Application, provided that Customer has paid all applicable fees due to Digital.ai and Customer acknowledges and agrees that it is not entitled to Support, nor does Digital.ai have any further obligation to provide Customer with Support after the effective date of termination.  Customer assumes all risks with respect to the Customer Application.

10.5 All provisions and obligations of this MSA or any Order which by their nature should survive any termination of this MSA or an Order will survive any such termination, including provisions and obligations with regard to accrued rights to payment, confidentiality obligations, warranty disclaimers, limitations of liability, engaging of third parties and liability for taxes and premiums.
